It’s 5.45 and the street lights come on, another day past, and I wonder
what do you get out of this, what do you gain
with these tyrannical laws you have created,
what hollows are you trying to fill by oppressing others,
denying basic human rights, taking away freedom,
tumbling peace-loving people into a state of fear, panic, hatred and desperation?
What is it you get from being so hateful,
from accumulating money and possessions whilst your country is dying,
what do you feel when you see your people suffer?
...but when you're alone, you are still that lonely, hateful, empty, poor, pathetic soul
and no laws you write will ever satisfy the darkness alive within your self,
it will never be satisfied, it will consume you and control you, it will own you
and you will remain a slave to your desires and greed and hate and self-loathing
because how can you sleep a sleep of peace
when you are actively plotting against, instrumental in implementing
the execution of your fellow man.
